Complaints about potentially false COVID-19 claims are one source for FTC investigations to determine whether warnings or other enforcement are warranted. FTC's Consumer Sentinel Network includes nearly 10,000 pandemic fraud complaints, including reports of alleged losses from payments for goods and services not delivered or provided.
